Who is in charge of your diabetes?
I take total control of my diabetes and health care team.
 
I let the doctors take the lead but I stay in step the whole way.
 
I have a family member (or other caregiver) who is working with me and my doctors.
 
I prefer to do as much myself as possible.
 
My doctors/caregiver have the bulk of the responsibility.
 
It's a tug-of-war!
 
It feels like the diabetes is in control.

I have spent the past three days dealing with an evil stomach bug. Gastro issues, bloodsugar issues and a headache for the ages - along with a low grade fever - left me in bed trying (and mostly failing) to rest. I'm back at work today after two sick days, but still on slo-mo. Weird bloodsugars are always my "getting sick" miner's canary. Everyone knows what a miner's canary is, right? Back in the day, miners would keep a caged bird (often a canary) with them in the mine....
